  • sports writing (print, TV, radio, online, social media)
  • broadcast (producing, on-air performance, chase and field producing, radio hosting, updates)
  • digital (using editorial publishing tools, blogging, video, audio, Storify, etc.)
  • social media (Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc.)
  • news journalism that meets the changing needs of sports coverage (courts, police, etc.)
  • advanced interviewing techniques
  • sports beat journalism
  • print and online imaging
